Sunday Shopping Secrets

Once again it time to reveal one of my shopping secrets……it will be at the end of this post ! Please remember to visit the hostess with the mostess the one and only ~ Blossom at:

to link up with other bloggers and their Sunday Shopping Secrets.


Blue stemmed glasses from the dollar store014

Blue drink glasses from Wal-Mart a dollar something….


Pitcher from Ross $5.99 goes good with my Spode…


I really like these little tea lights , got them at Pier 1 for $ 4.00 – they had different colors too !


Three little glass containers from Ross for $3.99 – I am using them in my studio for small art supplies…..but might use them in the kitchen…or in the bathroom…..they can go lots of places !

My shopping secret this week is to really look at boxes , open them up see what’s inside, the discount stores like Ross,Marshalls and TJ Maxx don’t always display things from boxes….look up high and down low and from behind….take the time to EXPLORE ! Don’t pass up the boxes – especially in the dish aisle !

Here is another extra tip I haven’t had the nerve to try but, the lady in front of me at Ross did….I witnessed the whole thing…..she was purchasing a piece of luggage for about $80 it had a very small spot -the size of a pea- on it (hardly noticeable and towards the bottom of the piece – I bet a little soap and water would wipe it right off) anyway she asks for a discount because it is a gift…the lady says o.k. and tries to give her a 5% discount…the lady says no, I want a 10% discount….the sales lady calls her manager and seconds later the lady has a 10% discount….at Ross – where stuff is discounted already…sheesh, I am going to have to try this one….

Hi Kammy,
Your blue pitcher is lovely.
And great tips about looking in boxes. Who would think?

Regarding discounts- I do that all the time. If there is a flaw, already discounted or not, they will usually give you a bit more off, usually the 10% the lady asked for.

Thank for doming by to see me and for leafing a comment.

Love the glasses and the pitcher. I am on the hunt for blue things and yours are perfect. Your tea lights are also so neat. The glass containers do look so versatile. I love to bargain shop and you did great. Hugs, Marty

Kammy...I love all of your great shopping finds from this week! Hmmm...I love those pretty little blue stemmed goblets that you got from the Dollar Store...I haven't seen any like them at ours...hope they get some in! I can't believe that you only gave $4.99 for that beautiful little blue & white pretty! And I love your candle holders and little glass canisters too!!! Girl, if I had seen these...I would have bought them my style!!!

Warmest wishes,

I want to go shopping with you.
I love all the items you bought; those blue glasses and the pier one candle holders are so awesome.
I only have a couple of glass sets that I use all the time. I need to invest in some more. You gave me a couple of ideas. Thank you for sharing with us on Sunday Shopping Secrets.
